Be Cheesy - Media Defined

The term "Media" comes from the word "medium". Literally translated, the term "medium" means "middle" or also "the middle one".
However, the word "media" encompasses all possible means of communication. This term was only derived and established around 30 years ago from the root word "medium".

History lesson

A medium was already a means of communication in early Christian times. Back then, the medium represented a connection to God or the universe.
By definition, the medium was therefore the transmitter of information between the human and the divine.

It was not until the 20th century, as a result of the development of technical devices, that the concept of communication between sender and receiver as we know it today developed. The current use of the term "media" describes technically generated means of communication whose task is to transmit information between these two channels.
